Conversion Therapy

Being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender is NOT a disease, disorder, illness or shortcoming.

So-called "conversion therapy" is a sham treatment which aims to "cure" subjects of their innate sexual orientation or gender identity.

The practice of "conversion therapy" is actually not a clinically tested medical therapy at all. It's been tragically shown to lead to mental illness, drug use, homelessness, self-harm and suicide -- especially in kids and teens.

Let's send a clear message to the LGBTQ youth of Florida: you’re wanted and welcomed here.

The American Psychological Association, American Psychiatric Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Association of Social Workers and numerous other professional and medical organizations have come out in opposition to “conversion therapy” and have warned of the harm that it does to minors.

It's time for our state to join the cities of Miami Beach, Miami, Wilton Manors, North Bay Village, and numerous other jurisdictions in moving to outlaw so-called conversion "therapy."
